Commentary

 

Previously it was commanded: Say to them that the time of ignorance and self-invented matters has passed. Now Allaah Almighty has been sending down the words of understanding and a heavy shower of the Truth continually. He has made full arrangements of mankind’s guidance at suitable time because He is Aware of all secrets and philosophies.

 

It has been commanded in this verse: The Truth has come, and the falsehood has been ruined. Power of the Just overcame, but the false has been suppressed. Falsehood has no power that it may create something or bring the dead to life again.

 

The people who have been saying: You have played tricks, left the path of forefathers and chosen the wrong path, say to such people: If I have been erring, I shall be punished properly due to my errors. There is no loss of yours in it. As my worldly life will be spoiled, like this I shall not be in peace even after death (God forbid). Think for awhile! Why have I been supporting the new Religion so much? Its main reason is it that my Lord has been sending down Divine Revelation towards me continuously. He does not let me go astray. I have full faith that I am at the Right Path. My Way is Correct and Straight.

 

I pray in His Court: my Lord! Show me the Right Path. He hears and accepts my prayer, because He is The Hearer for all living beings. He is with me every time and Nigh. He hears me, shall hear always and help me every time.

Quran Chapter 34: 47 & 48 (Pt-22, Stg-5) (L-2660) درس قرآن

The Knower of the Unseen

Chapter “SABAA’” – (Saba) – 34

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 

قُلْ مَا سَأَلْتُكُم مِّنْ أَجْرٍ فَهُوَ لَكُمْ إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَى ٱللَّهِ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ شَهِيدٌ 47  قُلْ إِنَّ رَبِّى يَقْذِفُ بِٱلْحَقِّ عَلَّٰمُ ٱلْغُيُوبِ 48

Commentary

 

Messengers of Allaah Almighty (peace be upon them) do not serve the human beings and are not their well-wishers for the purpose that they wish to reap advantage from it. They do not have any concern with it that the people should admit that they are their chiefs, stand before them with folded hands and produce good gifts before them. Most of the people of Makkah used to consider the same about the last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allaah be upon them). It has clearly been negated in this verse.

 

It is commanded: Say to them! I did never claim that you should accept me as your leader, admit my authority and dwell as my servants. If you think that I have demanded anything any time from you, then I say to you clearly that I am not needy of your any such thing. I am desirous to raise up your dignity from your lower state, which is advantageous for yourselves. Allaah Almighty will give me reward of this duty. I desire nothing from any other save Him. He has the remuneration of my work and He will bestow me by His kindness. He has been watching my work, because everything is present before Him. It is a best opportunity for you.

 

Allaah Almighty is The Beneficent, Who has been projecting the True Religion with liberality upon you by means of Divine Revelation. He knows all that which is hidden from the eyes of the mankind. He is Aware of all the Unseen.
